The conference went good.  I took my cane and can walk a lot further with it.  That is good news!  I walked around waterfront Portland several times.  We went to the Saturday market during a lull in the conference.  and on Saturday night I went dancing!  I paced myself: dance, rest, dance, rest!  ha ha.  yeah It was great.  I even got on the swing that hangs from the ceiling and swung over the heads of all the people!  I did not take the cane dancing!  But I wasn't too worn out from the day because I used it all day.
 
I wonder why I haven't been using the cane more often!  It gives me more mobility and takes some of the pressure off my hips and feet.  So I brought it school with me and will use it when walking across campus.  I can walk further without fear.  And, as current thread is discussing, exercise does help.

When I was at my worst with fibro - last fall - I used a cane and it was really great.

Sue,

I am so happy that you went dancing. That is so great. It must have been fun. I danced a couple of years ago. It was a blast. But I turn the music on at home and dance. It is good exercise.

I am again so happy for you.

Hugs, Karen
